Arts at Tenri Inaugural Concert
ARTS AT TENRI ANNOUNCES THE INAUGURAL SEASON OF
TENRI CHAMBER PLAYERS
A MONTHLY SERIES OF CHAMBER MUSIC CONCERTS FROM TWO CLASSICAL TRADITIONS;
EUROPE AND JAPAN.
First Concert - September 28, 2007, at 8:00PM
Tenri Cultural Institute, 43A West 13th Street
On Friday, September 28, 2007, at 8:00PM, at the Tenri Cultural Institute, 43a W.13th St., ARTS AT TENRI will open its 2007-2008 season with a unique chamber music concert of piano trios by Haydn and Beethoven, and classic music for the Japanese sankyoku ensemble of koto, shamisen and shakuhachi.
The excellent acoustics and intimate gallery setting of the Tenri Cultural Institute create a superb setting for listening to chamber music, and ARTS AT TENRI offers audiences the rare opportunity to hear both traditional and contemporary music from two cultures in a setting similar to the music rooms of the courts and castles of both Europe and Japan. Over 300 years of chamber music tradition will be presented throughout this series. Piano trios and string quartets from the great composers of Europe will alternate with music from Japans Edo period written for the standard trio of shamisen, koto and shakuhachi. Contemporary music for both western and Japanese instruments will be heard as well.
The September 28th inaugural concert showcases the programming goal of the series by combining music from both cultures in a single evening. The series proper will then feature monthly performances alternating between the traditions and feature the artistry of three distinctive ensembles: the Borromeo String Quartet, the Albert Lotto, Natasha Lipkina, Barbara Stein Mallow Piano Trio, and the James Nyoraku Schlefer, Masayo Ishigure and Yumi Kurosawa Sankyoku Ensemble, among others.
